Alternative NFL Hashtags for 2016

Never the trendsetter, the NFL pulled the ultimate “Cool Dad move” this week when it released individual hashtags and emojis for each team. Corporations invading Twitter is almost always a bad thing, but seeing as the NFL will begin broadcasting games over the social media platform this season, it was a natural transition. Expecting Cardinals fans to start hash-tagging the seemingly random command of “Be Red See Red;” that transition may take a little longer.

For every hashtag that actually makes sense (#RiseUp, #WhoDey) there’s one that doesn’t (#FeedDaBears, #HereWeGo). Then there’s the lazy teams who just used their names (Really Cowboys? No other phrase came to mind?)

With a full slate of NFL games on tap today, we’d hate for fans to have to follow along with such a ridiculous shill. Instead we’ve come up with some more accurate hashtags to capture some teams around the league. Why not use these to complain about you’re terrible team today?


Chicago: #1985 – The final step to admitting this team hasn’t been culturally relevant for 30 years.

Cleveland: #GoCavs – NBA season is just around the corner.

Dallas: #AmericasPunchingBag – Currently the Trump campaign hashtag, but the Cowboys should get a jump on it for when it comes available next season.

Jacksonville: #RememberBrunell – Nothing happened to Mark Brunell; the Jags should just occasionally remind fans that their used to be happier times.

Kansas City: #ChiefConcerns – Among them, Andy Reid still doesn’t know how to use timeouts.

Los Angeles: #AnythingBut7&9 – Pretty self-explanatory.

Miami: #WhenDoesWalkingDeadStart? – Oct. 23, the same day New England will clinch the East.

New England: #(a middle finger emoji) – Since Pats fans only use Twitter to complain anyways.

San Diego: #BoltforLA – Sure to be the rally cry when this team starts 0-6.

San Francisco: #KneelB4Chip – It’s topical, while also honoring their coach’s totalitarian regime.

Seattle: #GoCavs – Once a bandwagoner, always a bandwagoner.

Tampa Bay: #BuccleUp – See, I can do puns too!
